dc.descriptionProposal: Measurement of the neutron capture cross sections of 233U, 237Np, 240,242Pu, 241,243Am and 245Cm with a Total Absorption Calorimeter at n_TOF
dc.description.abstractAccurate and reliable neutron capture cross section data for actinides are necessary for the proper design, safety regulation and precise performance assessment of transmutation devices such as Fast Critical Reactors or Accelerator Driven Systems (ADS). The goal of this proposal is the measurement of the neutron capture cross sections of 233U, 237Np, 240,242Pu, 241,243Am and 245Cm at n_TOF with an accuracy of 5%. 233U plays an essential role in the Th fuel cycle, which has been proposed as a safer and cleaner alternative to the U fuel cycle. The capture cross sections of 237Np, 240,242Pu, 241,243Am and 245Cm play a key role in the design and optimization of a strategy for the Nuclear Waste Transmutation. A high accuracy can be achieved at n_TOF in such measurements due to a combination of features unique in the world: high instantaneous neutron fluence and excellent energy resolution of the facility, innovative Data Acquisition System based on flash ADCs and the use of a high performance Total Absorption Calorimeter as a detection device.
